We are still raving about the 2018 Mazda6. It has been here for a while now, but there is still much to talk about. We know that the new Mazda6 comes with a turbocharged engine option and a whole host of technological features. But how we measure the prestige of a car largely rests with how it compares to its competitors.
Well, here we are putting the new Mazda6 up against the 2018 Subaru Legacy. Both cars are very similarly sized and have similar engine specs. Each car is well-respected, so we thought this would make for a great matchup. For fairness' sake, we are comparing the base model of each vehicle. Keep reading to see what our research found.

The Mazda6 comes with loads of base technological features that just aren't matched by others in the class. Much of that comes from MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment. This brilliant and innovative system blissfully combines music, navigation, messaging, and much more into one easy-to-use program. MAZDA CONNECT™ can be used with a control knob between the two front seats so drivers don't have to futz with the primary touchscreen monitor.
Perhaps the biggest selling point of the 2018 Mazda6 is its new turbocharged engine. For years, customers asked for a new engine option under the 6's hood. Now it's finally here. 250 horses power the turbocharged engine while the car still averages up to 31 highway MPG. Come down to Puente Hills Mazda and check out the 2018 Mazda6 with your own eyes.
